On the 14th January 2020, Microsoft® will end support for Windows® 7. Financial institutions need to start the upgrade to Windows 10 now.
NCR has collaborated with both Microsoft and Intel® to develop a single, clear strategy to ensure that the upgrade is as simple and seamless as possible.
NCR is positioned to provide full support to our global clients and help them realize their deployment goals. Our global Professional Services division is ready to help you plan and implement the upgrade. Windows 10 incorporates optimized security features to the ATM network that are not available in earlier versions. Together with upgraded security, Windows 10 also brings enhanced interactions to the ATM end-user experience.
What does Windows 7 end of support mean?
Microsoft will no longer provide security patches, updates or support for the Windows 7 OS.
What are the potential risks of not moving to Windows 10?
Reputational risk through security vulnerabilities.
No more security patches – i.e. potential exposure to cyber attack.
Additional upgrade patches will no longer be issued.
Non-compliance with PCI could result in fines.
